Check them out–They were just ordinary men–fishermen for the most–that was Jesus’ disciples. They didn’t understand everything that the Lord was trying to teach them and were even lost as to what they should do after Jesus died. It wasn’t until they saw the risen Christ, witnessed his ascension to heaven, and then experienced the indwelling of the Holy Spirit that they were truly changed and lived lives in the power and direction of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Have you ever felt like those disciples did–weak, unsure, lost as to what to do at times? We need to remember that the “MORNING HAS COME.” Our Savior is alive and we, as His children, can now claim that resurrection power in our lives.
“That you should show forth the praises of Him who has called you out of darkness into light.” I Pet. 2:9b
“That I may know Him and the power of His resurrection.” Phil. 3:10
We don’t live in darkness, but in the LIGHT of that glorious resurrection morning. Yes, we are all just ordinary people, but with our Savior we can do the extraordinary!
